    Well I had a PM9 and have a Shield. Carried the PM9 90% of the time. I bought the PM9 to pocket carry but I couldn't do it in jeans so I sold it. After carrying the Shield now 100% of the time for a while I gotta say I miss the PM9. I love the Kahr trigger. The Shield had to be sent back for the gritty trigger. It came back better but still disappointed in it. People tell me it will get better with use....I hope so. I ended up buying a CW380 for pocket carry and I really like that little pistol. Good luck in your choice.

    Pull the trigger as you move the slide toward the end of the weapon. It will come right off.

    I carry a Ruger SR40C & I love everything about it (Size, Weight, Balance in my hand) and especially the trigger. I shot my Buddy's LC9. I had a funny look on face, so he asked me "WHAT?" I expected a consistency between the LC9 and the SR triggers. It was a long trigger pull and felt gritty. That's not a bad reaction, just not expecting that. The LC9 has that long pull because it does lack a manual safety. I would need to become more accustomed to it like any other firearm.

    I've never seen an LC9 without a manual safety.

    For the money, the CM9 is the best "pocket gun" on the market today. I'd keep it.

    I have the CM9 currently and it's definitely pocketable. It's not as cozy in there as say an LCP but I have no problems pocket carrying the CM9 in basic cargo shorts.

    I looked at the Shield (and the XDS) before buying the CM9 but they just seemed too big for pocket carry. That's not to say you couldn't do it with the right pants / shorts, though (i.e., something with real big pockets).

    Cm9 or Shield?

    Shield is size of CW, not CM. To me it is not pocketable. But who knows , there are folks who claim they can carry g26 in their front pockets , too. So YMMV.... Lol

    I DID have a Shield, and I still have the CM9.

    BTW, just brought home a P938 last week, a tad smaller than CM9 :-) but consider very very close in size.

    Cm9 or Shield?

    Yes I will have to, i would not carry it un-cocked. Just make sure the trigger is fully covered by the holster. But I don't usually pocket carry, only occasionally. I mostly IWB most of the time though.

    I had a Pm9 for years, but never really liked it much. Kinda snappy. Bought a Shield almost 2 years ago, and sold the PM9 that very same week after the first range trip.

    The Shield is admittedly not a pocket gun for something like a pair of jeans. But I front pocket carry it in cargo pants all the time. And in the summer, I use a smart carry holster and carry the shield all summer long when I wear drawstring type shorts.

    I've owned many subcompacts - the Shield is hands down my favorite of any I have ever owned.

    Here is a comparison of a Kahr and SHield - sizewise:

    The Shield is a great pistol, I own two, but it's no pocket gun. If you want to pocket carry stay with the CM9.

    Smith & Wesson is actually late to the game with the Shield.....not the trend setter.



    +1 on the PPS. Fantastic trigger, smooth shooting gun. IMO….better than the Shield.

    I have never shot a PPS, but have held one many, many times. The grip just doesn't feel right to me. I like the feel of the Shield better
